About this product
- DescriptionA heart-warming classic full of animal antics by Jill Tomlinson. Otto is a penguin chick, that much he kws, but other than this he has a lot to learn. Life at the bottom of the world is a curious thing and life can change at a moment's tice. The next blizzard, the next meal and the threat of being orphaned are all challenges that must be faced. But how will Otto and his friends manage? The only way that penguins can do - by looking after each other. A perfect story for animal lovers young and old, filled with tenderness and love combined with a subtle humour. Jill Tomlinson's animal stories have been enjoyed by children who want to snuggle down with a good read for decades. This edition of The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out is beautifully illustrated by Paul Howard.
- Author BiographyJill Tomlinson never intended to be a writer. She trained as an opera singer, and then decided to have a family whilst her voice matured. But illness intervened, and she had to find another outlet for her energies. She started on a journalism course, and by the third lesson decided she wanted to write for children. So she did! She is most known for her stories, 'The Cat Who Wanted to Grow Up', 'The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark', 'The Gorilla Who Wanted to Grow Up', 'The Otter Who Wanted to Know', 'The Penguin Who Wanted to Find Out' and 'The Aardvak Who Wasn't Sure'. Paul Howard is a very successful illustrator whose illustrations for the picture book of 'The Owl Who was Afraid of the Dark' by Jill Tomlinson have been widely acclaimed. Paul lives in Belfast with his wife and three children. 'Bugville' was the first book Paul has written, followed by the sequel 'Trouble in Bugville'.
